The food was terrific, and the service was really good UNTIL the waiter made a mistake. It wasn't the mistake that was a problem - it was how the restaurant management handled it. We were a party of 16, and since we were splitting the bill, the waiter got confused on some of the splits. Not a problem - we... More

We surprised visited our daughter, a Freshman at JMU. We decided to try Union Station as it was a bit off campus. VERY glad we did. All three of our meals were excellent, hot and tasty. The amazing drink selection is something we will return and sample at dinner. I'd call this a must try in Harrisonburg.

Union Station could have earned a higher rating if my bar experience hadn't been so negative. There were only two bartenders and the bar was filthy. When we sat down, it took ten minutes for them to clear the area where we were sitting and another five to acknowledge our existance and take our drink order. I ordered a martini... More

We were visiting our grandchildren at James Madison University and our granddaughter suggested Union Station for lunch ... and a great suggestion it was. Service was a little slow (there was six of us, and nobody ordered the same thing), but the ambience and food were excellent, and the price was reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Union Station was a pleasant surprise. We kind of luck out on this find. The wait staff was very polite and we were seated quickly. The food presentation was BEAUTIFUL! Not only did the food look good it also tasted great! The backdrop of the actual train tracks gave it extra ambiance. Good food! I would definitely recommend it!

I was in harrisonburg for homecoming and had the best time. The atmosphere was very reclaimed cool and there were fun speakeasy drinks available. The food was very reasonably priced. It was a great gem in downtown harrisonburg. A note for customers, make sure you pay attention when getting there because it is not easy to see from the road.

I've been to this locally owned restaurant several times. The food and atmosphere have always been fantastic with absolutely no complaints. However, at a recent trip there, service at the bar was exceptionally slow (we waited over 30 mins for an appetizer). Because we were meeting another group right afterwards and were on a time restraint, I asked the bar... More

I've been a few times for either personal or business. The menu has a variety of choices but neither time would I say I was wowed by the food. Beer and wine selection is average with limited options.

Went for a burger and to watch some Sunday football and thoroughly enjoyed it. Burger was huge and cooked just the way I requested. My husband had a beer flight and enjoyed all of them along with a "bratwurst" burger. Was a little crowded due to Alumni weekend at JMU, but service was good. Would definitely return when in the...

While Union Station has a LOT of local hype, the food and service are adequate at best. The bar specials aren't much and the drinks aren't either. Perhaps not watered down, but definitely no zip to anything I've tried. You would easily go broke obtaining a buzz from their adult beverages. The menu items I've tried have been very tasty... More
